一直很喜歡60年代的一首反戰歌曲Where Have All the Flowers Gone? 最先是由美國民歌手 Pete Seeger 創作的。1955年他在飛往Oberlin College 的飛機上寫下了三段歌詞 “Where are the flowers, the girls have plucked them. Where are the girls, they’ve all taken husbands. Where are the men, they’re all in the army.” 那詞是一二年前他讀了俄羅斯長篇小說 And Quiet Flows the Don (靜靜的頓河),書𥚃的 Cossack 哥薩克軍人在他們要從軍加入俄羅斯Czar 軍隊時唱的歌。在1960年時他發表了這首新作品,但在同一年 Joe Hickerson 給這首歌加了另二段的歌詞並且在最後再加上原來的第一段歌詞。Hickerson 當時是 Oberlin College 的學生聽到這首歌後在一個夏令營𥚃他自己加了歌詞唱給小朋友聽。Seeger 覺得很好就用了他加入的歌詞並且給了他百分之二十的版稅。我覺得Hickerson的添加譲整首歌更完整更有意義!

花到哪裡去了?喔,都被女孩們撿走了

女孩都到哪裡去了?都嫁丈夫去了

那這些丈夫們哪裡去了?都從軍當軍人去了

這些軍人都到哪裡去了?都躺在墓園裏了

墓園都到哪裡去了?都被花朵蓋滿了

花到哪裡去了?喔,都被女孩們撿走了

這首歌被翻唱成將近三十個語言,其中竟然也有中文版的,是潘秀瓊唱的,中文歌名是“花兒怎麼不見了”,在Dailymotion裏可以找到潘秀瓊唱的影片。在YouTube裏也可以找到Seeger唱的最早只有三段歌詞的原版,不過我還是比較喜歡The Kingston Trio唱的版本。

The Kingston Trio 唱的: Where have all the Flowers Gone?

Where Have All the Flowers Gone?          by Pete Seeger

Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?

Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?

Where have all the flowers gone?

Young girls have picked them everyone.

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the young girls gone, long time passing?

Where have all the young girls gone, long time ago?

Where have all the young girls gone?

Gone for husbands everyone.

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the husbands gone, long time passing?

Where have all the husbands gone, long time ago?

Where have all the husbands gone?

Gone for soldiers everyone

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the soldiers gone, long time passing?

Where have all the soldiers gone, long time ago?

Where have all the soldiers gone?

Gone to graveyards, everyone.

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the graveyards gone, long time passing?

Where have all the graveyards gone, long time ago?

Where have all the graveyards gone?

Gone to flowers, everyone.

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?

Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?

Where have all the flowers gone?

Young girls have picked them everyone.

Oh, when will they ever learn?

Oh, when will they ever learn?
